The Flower Challenge 3rd Birthday

Hello, my card today is for The Flower Challenge who are celebrating 3 years!  Happy Birthday!
CAS-ual Fridays are the sponsors so I have used my favourite CF floral stamp "Pretty Posies" for the occasion.

I white heat embossed my images and then did some more Colorburst watercolour powder painting with Prisma pencils for the shading.  The sentiment is from my fave CF sentiment set "Shenanigans".

Watercolour powders and Pretty Posies

Hello, I'm over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today with a card I made using some Brusho and Colorburst watercolor powders and Prisma pencils.

I have never had much luck with those powders, I just don't know when to stop with the spraying of water and end up making a huge mess!  Today I have used them in a different way. 
If you would like to see how I made this card you can click HERE to pop over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog  to see all the instructions.

Challenge me a Christmas card with Michelle Lupton



Hello and happy Saturday!
I'm so happy to be joining Michelle Lupton again this year for her "Challenge me a Christmas Card" event!  
Michelle asked me to choose a theme so I have chosen glitter.  I can't wait to see what Michelle has made, her cards are beautiful!

For my card I have used a stamp from Whimsy Stamps that I have had in my stash for a few years.  I love pulling out old stamps to use at Christmas time.  Actually I can't recall ever using this one!!
I coloured this cute little hamster in with Copics and Prisma pencils and then used a quickie glue pen to add some glitter.
I'd forgotten how hard it is to capture all the sparkle of glitter in photos!



Here's a close up showing more of the glitter.
